A Great Quote
Something to ponder.

This quote was in my morning paper from Joseph Casey who found the decision by KNME to refuse to air "Unlocking the Mystery of Life" to be disappointing.

"Nothing will keep man in everlasting ignorance longer than contempt prior to investigation."

Anyone know who said it? I'd love to give credit where due.

Ah, I just found it:

"There is one thing that will keep a man in everlasting ignorance and poverty. That one thing is contempt prior to investigation."
